Kelly Myers, DVM

Veterinarian/Owner


Dr. Myers was born in Syracuse, NY and moved to Southern California while still in high school and graduated in 1989. She did her undergraduate studies and played soccer at Cal Poly Pomona, graduated with BS in Animal Science in 1995. She then moved to Gainesville, FL and became an animal anesthetist at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, University of Florida. Dr. Myers graduated from University of Florida with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine Degree in 2002.

Upon graduation from Vet School, Dr. Myers moved to San Diego and practiced at a small animal hospital for 11 years where she treated cats, dogs, and occasional pocket pets. She opened Highlands Ranch Animal Hospital in Carmel Valley late July 2013.

Dr. Myers has a special interest in dentistry, general/preventative and geriatric medicine. She resides with her husband, an 8-year-old 3rd grader and a 6-year-old kindergartner who keep them very busy year round! They have Luke, their 13-year-old lovable Border collie mix who is enjoying his golden years and loves to come to work with Dr. Myers.

Dr. Myers grew up her entire life with 1 or more dogs. Her love and passion for caring for animals started when she was young and continues to this day. She enjoys most sports, with soccer being number one and is now enjoying them with her children. In her spare time, she enjoys running, spending time with family at the park, at soccer tournaments, the beach or at home playing games!
